Runtz, also known as “Runtz OG,” is a rare hybrid marijuana strain by Cookies. It’s made by crossing Zkittlez with Gelato and is loved for its incredibly fruity flavor profile that smells just like a bag of the sugary candy we all know and love. Because of the rising popularity of this strain, it’s no surprise Runtz was named Leafly Strain of the Year in 2020. Growers say this strain has resin-drenched buds that range in color from rich purple to lime green. This strain is celebrated for its creamy smoke that is smooth and welcoming. This strain produces euphoric and uplifting effects that are known to be long-lasting.

GROWING TIP: Runtz strain is not the easiest strain to obtain in seed form due to its desirability. But if you do get your paws on that sweet citrusy goodness, you’ll be delighted to learn that Runtz grows pretty much anywhere, for growers of any experience level.
It grows ambitiously “upwards,” as you might have guessed from the height measurement we gave, and in its natural growing pattern doesn’t spread out a whole lot. Those who want to encourage lateral growth can use the Screen of Green method to tease the plant into a more manageable growing pattern.
We recommend being generous with the nitrogen in Runtz’s growing environment if you want to start tapping its true potential. On the flavor front, the strain is a California (now Colorado) mainstay for a reason.
The strain is packed with three dominant terpenes – Beta-Caryophyllene, Linalool, and Limonene – that give it its distinct flavor. It includes both the sweet-sugar excitement of candy and layered tones of woody and tropical citrus.
The fruitiness is delicious and the earthiness leaves just enough depth to satisfy users who have a more complex palette. The Runtz effects range from calming to tingly-sleepy, the kind of feeling you get when you feel justified doing absolutely nothing at all.
We recommend this strain as a perfect companion for a spa day, a long nap, a do-nothing lazy Saturday, or a movie marathon (provided you don’t mind missing the ending!).
